This study estimated healthcare costs and utilisation for patients with AR and asthma. Mean annual outpatient visits, pharmaceutical costs and inpatient hospitalisations were calculated for 2010 and 2014, with pharmaceutical and inpatient costs stratified by AIT use. AR and asthma patients had a 35% higher mean number of physician visits and up to 90% higher mean pharmaceutical costs compared to controls. The cost of pharmaceuticals and inpatient hospitalisations were 54% lower in those prescribed AIT. Further research is recommended to understand the reasons for these cost differences.

Authors: Chen LC, Zeng GS, Wu LL, Zi M, Fang ZK, Fan HZ, Yu HP Abstract Objective: To evaluate the diagnostic value of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) and maximum mid-expiratory flow (MMEF) for differentiating cough variant asthma (CVA) from chronic cough in patients with or without allergic rhinitis.Methods: In total, 328 patients with chronic cough who underwent spirometry and FeNO testing were consecutively included in the retrospective analysis. Patients were divided into the CVA (n = 125) or NCVA (n = 203) groups according to the diagnostic criteria of CVA. Receiver operating...

Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: Pulmonary Pharmacology &TherapeuticsAuthor(s): Eleonora Di Salvo, Vincenzo Patella, Marco Casciaro, Sebastiano GangemiAbstractMontelukast the leukotriene receptor antagonist is an anti-inflammatory drug that causes bronchodilation and for this reason it is used to improve inflammatory states in asthma and allergic rhinitis. Montelukast is generally considered a safe drug with the occurrence of a few adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and anti-leucotrienes are usually well-tolerated by adults and young patients. Starting from these premises the purpose of this review...

This study is to investigate the mechanism through which DMBT1 exerts its effects on AR progression. METHOD: DMBT1 levels in the nasal lavage (NL) fluid and the nasal mucosa in AR and control groups were determined by ELISA and IHC. Next, mice were sensitized with ovalbumin; intranasal administrations of recombinant DMBT1 were then performed. DMBT1 in the nasal mucosa of mice were determined by IHC and WB. Nasal symptoms were estimated. IL-4 and IL-5 in BAL fluid and eosinophils infiltration in the nasal cavity were measured through ELISA and HE staining, respectively. RESULTS: DMBT1 levels were found to be signi...

This study aimed to propose an automatic recognition and volume calculation for the inferior turbinate and maxillary sinus by using image processing techniques. The back propagation neural network (BPNN) was used for automatic recognition of the inferior turbinate and maxillary sinus. Parametric template matching (PTM) and the sub-region similarity were used as feature inputs. The level set method (LSM) was applied to circle the contour of the inferior turbinate and maxillary sinus. The marching cubes algorithm was employed for 3D reconstruction and visualization. The volume information was obtained from the nonlinear regr...

We examined our primary care birth cohort of 158,510 pediatric patients, of whom 214 patients met 2017 FPIES diagnostic criteria. We measured the influence of FPIES on developing subsequent atopic disease.ResultsPediatric FPIES incidence was between 0.17% and 0.42% depending on birth year. As in prior reports, most patients had an acute presentation (78%), and milk, soy, oat, rice, potato, and egg were common triggers. The mean age of diagnosis was 6.8 months. Atopic comorbidity was higher in patients with FPIES compared with healthy children (AD, 20.6% vs 11.7%; IgE-FA, 23.8% vs 4.0%; asthma, 26.6% vs 18.4%; AR, 28.0% vs 16.7%; P

We examined 3,917 children (age 4 ‐13 years) who were enrolled in a cross‐sectional study conducted in Seongnam, Korea. Their parents completed the Pediatric Sleep Questionnaire (PSQ) for evaluation of OSAS and the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC) questionnaire for evaluation of rhinitis. Clinical biomarkers, including total eosinophil count and neutrophil‐lymphocyte ratio (NLR), were measured in a subset of these children.ResultsOSAS and rhinitis had prevalences of 4.0% and 43.5%, respectively. Body mass index (P
